Why Finger Lakes Works?
Finger Lakes Works is the nexus of business and industry connections and partnerships including the Department of Labor, economic development offices, training providers and a multitude of resources, services and supports to strengthen workforce and economic development in the four-county local area of Wayne, Ontario, Seneca and Yates counties.
As such, we offer to develop a social media campaign of your business to share with this local network of connections including our local community following.
Consistently, the weeklong campaign drives four weeks of social media activity that we collect and put into a report to share with you.
What is the intended outcome?
Drive local applications and potential new hires. Feedback from local hiring managers tells us thatcommercial recruitment platforms drive applications that are electronically matched and not necessarily “real person” initiated; leading to low hiring opportunities.
FL Hires campaign sends an interested individual directly to your choice of connection (not a platform “form”) increasing application traffic of interested individuals.
It’s yours to use and replicate:
Several of our campaign models have been adopted by participating employers. Please feel free to use or replicate your campaign for your use!
Want to know more? We’ll set up a 30-minute zoom and share past campaigns, outcomes and answer questions – call (315) 246-9506 or email@example.com.
